in an exclusive interview with nbc news pentagon correspondent jim miklaszewski. take a listen. >> we have reached a point where we have to plan for other options, to include a complete withdrawal by the end of 2014, but it is not an indication that we are not continued to be committed to a mission beyond' 14, because we very much believe the afghans need our help. >> all right. jim joins me this hour from kabul, afghanistan. thank you for taking time to be on the show. >> reporter: you bet, ronan. >> jim, what is the general saying here? >> reporter: well, it almost sounds like on one hand they underhanded and it really is. only one day after president obama ordered the military to come up with plans to withdraw all american forces out of afghanistan by the end of 2014, today general dempsey made a strong case that they should stay. for the first time, he revealed what a post-2014 mission for u.s. forces would look like. he insisted it would not put american men and women directly into harm's way. instead of going out on training missions into combat with afghan forces, those u.s. trainers would

back then and standing outside the hospital for days and the fight that jim has made for his life. and we see all of the victims, newtown and no matter how many victims there are of gun violence, there's such political resistance to closing loopholes. >> the encouraging thing that the american public is behind us. it's about closing that extraordinary disconnect that exists between what the american public wants and what the elected leaders are doing about it. we take tremendous inspiration from what sara and our predecessors at the brady campaign accomplished. this brady law has been tremendously effective. we've prevented 2.1 million prohibited purchasers from purchasing guns. that's 48 domestic abusers every day that have been prohibited. it's a question of building on that success and looking at what it takes to accomplish that success. it doesn't happen overnight and we can take inspiration from the fight that sara led around the original brady law there. >> i was covering congress at the time, i remember. >> we have to stay the course and it's about making the voice heard an

this an invasion. what exactly are nato officials considering there? >> hi, jim. earlier today the nato secretary general gave a brief statement to the media in which he called on russia to deescalate tensions. take a listen to what he had to say. >> what russia is doing now in ukraine, violates the principles of the united nations charter. it threatens peace and security in europe. russia must stop its military activities and its threats. today we will discuss their implications for european peace and security and for nato's relationship with russia. >> now there are two meetings taking place today here at nato headquarters. the first meeting, a meeting of the north atlantic council. that's the primary decision making body for nato. that meeting we understand is still under way. that will be followed by a meeting by the nato ukraine commission. that meeting taking place at the behest of ukrainian officials. the commission was formed in 1997 with the aim of strengthening military inside the ukraine as well as improving ties between kiev and western europe. now many people see the involvement of n
in the ukraine may put more of a strain on the u.s. and russian relations. jim sciutto is joining us with that side of the story. so, in your mind, does the u.s. have any more plans other than just talking loudly at this point? >> well, that's a good question. in those words, there's a lot of meaning. officials delivering very stark warnings to the russians to be careful not to move in. you heard secretary of state john kerry saying yesterday it would be, in his words, a grave mistake in the russians move in. now you have defense secretary chuck hagel who is traveling saying that russia should not make any moves that could easily be misinterpreted. we know they are watching closely. i think we can assume that they are working very much behind the scenes to deliver that message as well. and that shows that they are concerned. what else can they do beyond those concerns, it's a fair question. we don't know. it's hard to say what else they can do. >> what is the biggest concern? >> the biggest concern is that russia moves in. we've seen this story before. you remember in 2008 when russi
hill. >> you got to get every vote you can. now, they have jim messina and other people out there who know how to do this. we saw is the last time around with republicans in 2012 were completely hapless. >> let's look at the good news for the democrats. let's look at the issues that the president thinks. these are interesting. the latest are facing a challenge in landscape of course in november. but when it comes to almost every major issue, the majority of americans actually do, this is so ironic, given sort of the bad morale out there for the dems. nearly two-thirds want the minimum wage raised to $10.10. two-thirds of the country. on the affordable care act, the majority of americans do say they don't want to get rid of it. they don't want to repeal it. they would rather fix it. this is not republican orthodoxy here. a large majority say the government has a role in reducing income inequality. that's not a republican bugle call. more republicans blame -- more americans blame republicans. the majority of republicans support same-sex marriage. yes. that's changed. more republicans sa
.s. officials. much of the world is on edge right now. let's go over to jim sciutto. he's been following all of these developments. it's sort of reminiscent of the battle days of the cold war. >> no question. you get a clear sense of how concerned administration officials are by the repeated, stern warnings delivered at the highest level to russia. on friday, president obama called russian president vladimir putin. today, we heard it from defense secretary chuck hagel, secretary of state john kerry and jay carney. the message verbatim. do not send russian troops into the ukraine and the u.s. will be watching. this is all as violence broke out on the streets of the ukraine today. today, pa frightening taste of worse-case scenario for the ukraine, the country divided among ethnic lines. adding to the tension, russian warplanes placed on high alert and russian troops mobilizing for military exercises right along the ukraine eastern border. with the obama administration increasingly concerned about russian's intentions, president obama issued a stern warning. >> i urged him not to take any steps
. senator, thank you very much for joining us today. as you know from our own jim miklaszewski and interviews with martin dempsey, the joint chiefs chairman and what the president has said to karzai, we are not going to wait for anything further from him, we have given up on him. so what happens if we end up withdrawing all troops from afghanistan? >> it could be a problem. i mean, in terms of just the security in afghanistan, the troops there, their forces have improved a great deal. they are miles ahead of where they were just a few years ago, but are they going to be able to resist a kind of hit-and-run guerilla war by the taliban. and the other issue is counter terrorism and what our basis is there. this is a real problem and the president is doing a real thing by calling karzai's bluff. he left the door open, though, there's a presidential election coming up in a couple months, and the new president might be ready to sign this thing. the irony is they had this convention of the whole leadership of the whole country, and they said yes to the whole deal. and now karzai, i do
jim clibert of south carolina and long-time advocate of raising minimum wage and also joining us is casie hunt. congressman, i'm curious is this an issue for the democrats or a victory? if you win you win before november, before the house adjourns. if you don't win you talk about it. what is the goal? win or talk about it in the election? >> it is always to win. i would much rather see the people on main street of america, those hard working men and women get the raise they deserve. that's why we are doing this. we believe that to raise the minimum wage will lift a couple of million people out of poverty. it will affect 60% of the people affected are women. so many of the women are heads of households. that is what we want to do. we want to give america a raise and we will worry about the politics of it later. >> i got to talk about it now because i'm not sure this thing can win. you have 199 members. you need 218. you need at least -- how are you going to get the reasonable republicans mostly from the northeast to midwest to vote with you? how do you put the pressure on these gu
correspondent jim sciutto. there's so many policies and cultures. it seems far away but it isn't. >> ukraine is in europe, kiev is miles away from rome, paris, london, that kind of thing and we have u.s. allies just to the west, poland, slovakia, hungary, romania. the u.s. is required to defend these countries militarily if they come under threat. >> crimea, appropriately colored red. why? >> because it has that pull toward russia. russia, right on the tip of russia, it's the headquarters of their black sea fleet, their on warm water port, all of the ports up here are cold, they don't have access to them in the winter. this is key. it's key when those thousands of russian troops moved into crimea, it where they went. >> people will remember this place throughout history. you had famous things happening here as part of its separation, we were talking earlier, florence nightingale. >> that's right, long ties between this part of the world and seems a million miles away in europe. >> the charge of the light brigade back in the 1850s. this went against the wrong front there and it proved very co
will mention ambassador jim warlick and ambassador dobbins who did a great job. so we have a great agreement in place. what is the future with that agreement? it will be difficult. afghanistan faces challenges and, all of us are aware of those challenges but i think the odds are very much in favor of success with the bsa in place. will it be in place? the afghan people have spoken. the afghan presidential candidates, a number of whom i spoke to in kabul when i was there are all in favor of signing the bsa i think it's a virtual certainty the bsa will be signed. the issue whether president karzai signs it or not in my view is irrelevant. we need to plan on effectively him not signing it and move forward. i truly hope that any of the costs ambassador dobbins said might occur if there is delay might be effected by the great planning capacity our agencies have. i don't think there is any need for any particular cost as long as we keep our eye on the long game as is the topic of this panel. in turning to this topic of the afghan security forces which i not going to be expert i visited afghanistan
with eminent domain after the governor approved that. >> jim tarnick, we'll stay on the story. i appreciate your time tonight. thanks for speaking up. congressman lee terry agreed to join us on the program tonight. but because of votes in congress, he was unable to join us this evening. he will appear on this program next week. that's "the ed show." i'm ed schultz. "politicsnation" with reverend al sharpton starts right thought. good evening, rev. >> good evening, ed. and thanks to you for tuning in. i'm live tonight from washington, d.c. tonight's lead, new documents in the chris christie bridge scandal revealed. we're learning more about the actions of key christie aides and allies before, during, and after the lane closings. the information comes from david wildstein. the former bridge official who carried out the lane closings. he's the one who replied "got it" to that now infamous e-mail, "time for some traffic problems in ft. lee." that exchange came to light as part of subpoenaed documents. but a big question has been why did wildstein cross out some material? today the big news. man
was furious that a key money raising and strategic guy, jim messina, seemed to commit to hillary clinton. what joe biden is doing is trying to freeze in place the rest of his people. >> the same instinct, don't talk me out of this. watch what he does with the great barbara walters. here he is on "the view." look what he says when asked about his 2016 intentions by barbara walters who very carefully got him to commit here. watch. >> you have said if she runs for president, you will not run. >> no i have not. >> oh, then tell me what you said. >> the only reason to run for president of the united states, if you truly believe you're in a better position to do what you believe is most needed in the country. i think my knowledge of foreign policy, my engagement with world leaders, my experience is uniquely positions me to be -- to follow through on the agenda barack and i have of bringing up world peace in a way that is real and substantive. i also think the middle class st. the single -- the single focus, what we should be looking at and how to grow it. so whether she runs or not will not affect m
$29.99 a month. with limited availability in select markets. ♪ >>> this is democratic congressman jim mcdorm mcdermot washington. he was a leading voice on health care. this was before obamacare, it was when the clinton administration was trying to reform health care. in april 1993, he had a big meeting scheduled at the white house with then first lady hillary clinton. the goal was to get congressman mcdermott on board with the clinton administration's approach to health reform as they tried to get it passed through congress. the day before that meeting, hillary clinton's staff, we now know, sent her this memo prepping her for that meeting with congressman mcdermott, quote, we need to keep him happy and on our side. quote, as staged and pr presumptuous as that is, you might suggest you throw out all the staff at the end of the meeting to have a private relationship with him, this will signal your closeness with him. the efforts by the clinton white house to woo certain members of congress are kind of fascinating to read about in this gritty level of detail. these details are spelled o
this, but i believe jim mcgrechy appointed mr. samson to an important role at some point. >> david samson has friends on both sides of the aisle. that's certainly a part of the story. >> jim mcgreevey is a bipartisan sort of a guy. that said -- >> not the paragon of ethics in new jersey. >> i don't remember him being investigated by a legislative committee, though. come back to this idea of an ethical problem, this presents what we in the legislature like to call a marcy hochman moment, our legislative council. you do not do anything that even remotely ben you. if we're a part-time legislator, and we are, we cannot vote on a bill that will directly benefit one of our clients. i'm not going to comment on the particulars of those cases because i don't see all the facts, but until such time -- it just strikes me that, again, when you're in that position, your law firm is that closely related to it, there are certainly questions that need to be addressed. i'm sure that he will address them. >> given what had his law firm does and what the port authority does, there's the overlap seems
the united states and other countries. cnn's chief national security correspondent jim sciutto has been looking into this for us. he's got the latest. >> reporter: wolf, this is really the starkest warning we've heard from u.s. officials on syria. it's part of a broader narrative about the evolving terror threat to the u.s. the bottom line, that threat is becoming more diffuse. you have offshoots of al qaeda, home grown terrorists in the u.s. and now with sear yarks veterans of that war, some of them americans, to return home to carry out attacks. >> thank you for the opportunity to be here. >> reporter: today america's top homeland security official said that syria may be the most serious terror threat to the u.s. homeland. >> i would say that for us in national security and homeland security in this government, this particular issue is t the top of list or near the top of the lis for us. we talk about it all the time. we're carefully monitoring the situation. >> reporter: syria's brutal civil war has provided al qaeda-tied terrorist groups the perfect combination of violence and lawle

to hang out with me and jim, wonderful. i almost wouldn't want to be in their presence. don't go to the wedding, don't say congratulation. but when you run a business you're doing that in part because a web of state laws makes it possible. what about people in a bar? i assume arizona is like other states and that you just can't open up a bar. you got to get a liquor license from the state. what if there are only a limited number of establishments that serve you? what if you were in a fairly small community where there aren't a lot of florists. this is a real depravation. if you decide to open a business, given the inevitable entanglement with the state laws, maybe there's zoning, maybe you have a certain facility and somebody couldn't open up one nearby because of the zoning restrictions, it's a very real intrusion on your ability to live. and as i said, they have this dilemma, if u they don't narrow it, it's too broad. >> representative orr i want to get you in here and ask where do you think arizona should go from here? sl a there is no statewide ban. where do you think arizona
